Many people ask "WHY SHOULD WE BOOK SO EARLY?" The answer is "BOOK NOW SO YOU CAN GET THE BEST OF YOUR MANY OPTIONS." Beach Club is an incredibly popular vacation destination. It is packed the entire season. In 2016 we sold out from January 1st through the end of October. This was our second year in a row for a sellout. Some of our best repeat guests missed out because they waited too long. Whether you choose to stay with us or some other great place, book now! Don't wait and wind up missing out!


Travelers looking for the best choose the Beach Club for their getaway vacation on the Gulf. Why? Because Beach Club is the premier Gulf destination in Alabama. Its combination of gorgeous grounds, pristine white beach, luxury accomodations and variety of activities right on site is unmatched. That's why Beach Club is rated the top Resort/Condo facility on the entire northern Gulf Coast. It is also ranked in the top 10 family resort destinations in the USA.

If you are going to choose the Best destination, why not also choose the Best unit for your personal stay? That's exactly what we work to provide.

You will be coming for the sugar sand beach and all it offers. But . . . at the end of the day you will need to go home. Here you will end your day in the same luxury and comfort as your own home.

WE DECORATED JUST FOR YOU. Bamboo hardwood floors bring warmth, a feeling of home. A variety of area rugs provide interest and color. The furniture says, sit down and relax. Two new full sized leather recliners are perfect for your afternoon or evening siesta. We've even thought of flat screen HD TV's with DVD players in every room.

The MASTER BEDROOM SUITE brings the same attention to detail. Bright and cheery decor complements the ocean views from your bedroom. You will crawl up on the platform King bed and snooze to the sound of the Gulf surf. You will doze off watching cable TV or your favorite DVD'S that you bring along.

From the Master Suite walk directly into the PRIVATE MASTER BATH. Store your clothes in the walk-in closet. Store your personal items in the huge double vanity with tons of drawers. Forget bringing your hairdryer - we've got one. Best yet, end your day with a soothing soak in the large jetted tub and shower.

You have choices in Bedroom #2. We normally set it up as twin beds because lots of you have kids that don't want to sleep together. But . . . IF YOU WANT ANOTHER KING BED, YOU'VE GOT IT. We can change the twin beds into a King bed. Just let us know and its yours. Lots of closets and drawers. Bedroom #2 also has a private bath for your convenience. Lots of space, hair dryer . . . just like every bath in the unit, and a large glass door shower and tub enclosure pamper your needs.

Bedroom #3 is a bright cozy Queen setting with lots of closet space. You'll need to cross the hallway to the bathroom. Once there you will be greeted by a giant walk-in shower and the same hairdryer and amenities of the other baths.

We haven't forgotten that tiny youngster in your group. We keep a Pack-n-Play and an adjustable high chair in the closets so you don't have to bring them along.

Some of you like to cook and eat in . . others won't consider it. It's vacation. Our GIANT KITCHEN is here for both of you. You will have EVERYTHING YOU NEED. From coffee grinder to lobster pot, from toaster to blender, from electric mixer to counter top grill and every utensil you can imagine, you've got it all. Plus your choice of where to eat...right at the kitchen counter, while relaxing on the deck or at the large dining room table.

The large IN-UNIT WASHER & DRYER LET YOU TRAVEL LIGHT, especially with kids. Just throw in a load on the way to the beach and clean clothes will be waiting when you return

SURPRISE BONUS! The outside owners closet is home to beach supplies. We started it and some of our guests have added to the collection. Beach chairs, umbrella, rafts, toys.... a little of eveything. HELP YOURSELF during your stay.

BEST OF THE BEST! That's our goal. We'll work to deliver.

About Daryl Raabe

We live here in our other unit 4 months each year. While here, this rental receives the same loving care as our own. You'll fall in love with the bamboo floors and light, cheery updated decor.

Fishing is my passion and if you are interested, I'll be glad to help you get started here on Fort Morgan.

Daryl Raabe purchased this condo in 2005

Why Daryl Raabe chose Alabama Gulf Coast

A 3 day visit with a friend at Beach Club did it all. We have literally traveled the world, yet this was the first place we found for our second home. It has it all; luxurious comfortable accommodations, world class sugar sand beaches, fishing, golf, hiking, historical sights. You name it, its here. Top it off with the GREAT people of Alabama. They have embraced us Yankee visitors as guests and friends.

What makes this condo unique

Beach Club is a resort destination. Forget the side-by-side strip condos of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Forget sharing your beach with everybody and anybody. Forget fighting the traffic on the beach highway. Instead, when you take the 12 mile drive down Fort Morgan Road to The Beach Club, you enter a world of your own. A sign will greet you with the message, 'RELAX, YOU ARE HERE'. If you want to park your car for a week and go nowhere, you can. This gated complex has it all and you share it only with other Beach Club guests.

The unmatched beauty of The Beach Club hits you with your first look down from our 17th floor deck. You see the 5 outdoor pools, each with it's own kiddie pool and hot tub. A boardwalk sits atop our natural beach dunes. Swings offer a place to just sit and enjoy the surf view. A short walk down the 3 meandering boardwalks brings you to over 20 uninterrupted miles of pristine white sugar sand beach.

Our 'Club' membership provides access to the central Clubhouse on a daily fee basis. Here you find a heated indoor pool, exercise complex, sauna, steam room, lockers and showers, towel service, children's game room, and access to the large club outdoor pool with its own bar and grill service (seasonable).

Dining is another pleasure. If you like to cook your own food, stock up on groceries in town and prepare them in our gourmet equipped Kitchen. If you're on vacation and cooking is for someone else, it's all right here. The Coast Restaurant in the Clubhouse offers exquisite breakfasts, lunches and dinners accompanied with panoramic views of the Gulf. The Village Hideaway provides grilled specialty lunches, dinners, sports entertainment and great craft beers. The Village Creamery takes care of your sweet tooth for breakfast bakery and a variety of ice cream dishes. The unlimited variety of Gulf Shores cuisine is only 20 minutes away.

Beautiful view, peaceful and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this condo! The view of the beach was beautiful from the balcony. My family and I enjoyed watching the dolphins swim in the ocean. I loved how quiet the condo was. I do not enjoy crowds and I appreciated how peaceful this condo was.

Best four days I've had in a very long time!!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my sisters and I spent four days at this great place!! It is every bit as nice as the pictures. And Daryl was great to work with. The Welcome Booklet answered all the questions we had.

The condo is away from all the traffic and crowds - which was exactly what we like. Only about a 20 minute drive though if you enjoy all of that.

Beautiful sunrise and sunsets!! Already looking at our calendars to see when we can go back.

Thanks Daryl and Nancy!!

Great week at Fort Morgan Beach Club

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip that was not during peak summer time, and we look forward to doing it again. We arrived and found all at the condo in perfect order. The weather was perfect, and we were able to enjoy the beach to its fullest. Fewer people, due to off season, just enhanced the beach experience. The 17th floor balcony was the perfect vantage point for viewing the parade of porpoises that made their way up and down the beach each day, and to enjoy the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from. The fishing was great right on the beach. During our stay we caught red fish, pompano, bunches of lady fish, bunches of whiting and other fish that I did not recognize. We also enjoyed flying kites in the ample breeze that seemed to show up everyday. Our only problem was that the days passed by much too quickly.Thank you Darryl and Nancy for making the beautiful piece of paradise available to us.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Having rented through VRBO on many occasions in the past I can say the customer service provided by the Raabe's was the best I have experienced, before, during and after our stay. My wife is disabled, the Raabe's made sure the unit would work for us by providing information and insisting on a phone conversation to be sure!!

The unit is beautiful. The complex absolutely gorgeous. And the gulf is right there, enough said. We plan to return

The condo is amazing. Beautiful and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Our finding this condo was the best part of our vacation. The owners, Darryl and Nancy Raabe, were very responsive and helpful. The booklet they prepared for our arrival was so informative and good to have for newbies to the area.

We arrived and had a trouble free registration. The condo was clean, bright and the view of the white sandy beach was beautiful. There was every convenience of home, with great fluffy bath towels. The washer & dryer are definitely a plus being in a very hot & humid location. We would certainly consider this again should Gulf Shores be on our radar.

Comfortable and beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Just can't say enough!! Daryl and Nancy were super helpful not only in the reservation making process but with info and helpful hints for The Beach Club but surrounding areas.

Bristol 17th floor has a beautiful view. Our day started and ended on the balcony. Would have stayed on there all day but there were 2grandsons that thought better. The beach and pool are perfect for all ages. We were sometimes the only family in the pool and hot tub.

Bristol 17th floor could not have been better. Well equipped kitchen, spacious bathrooms and tvs in all the bedrooms as well as in the living area. Everything you would want while away from home.

Looking forward to going back in the near future!! Thanks Nancy and Daryl.

Gulf Shores Golf Club

Children love the outdoor playground with slides and climbing equipment, poolside games and activities (seasonal) where they make friends for the rest of their stay, friendly competition on the basketball and sand volleyball courts, and the beach where waves, boogey boards and sand castles head the list. Adults start the day with walks on the beach or the many paths right here on the property. Serious hikers and nature lovers head to nearby Bon Secour Wildlife preserve for its miles of undisturbed nature trails. Golfers have their choice of 3 topnotch courses, all within 20 minutes from the front door. Fishermen wade out into the surf right in front of the condo or charter with one of the great captains of the area. Historians visit Fort Morgan, site of critical Civil War battles. And....if you really need the crowds, Gulf Shores offers all the shopping, dining and tourist attractions you can imagine just 20 minutes away.
